Menlo40 (Gladiator tire wear)

So, I purchased a new 2020 Gladiator Rubicon last year and started to notice a bumpy and noisy ride. I took a look at the tires and noticed the wear pattern was not the same as the ones on the back. It's ups and down that cuased the concern. I took it into the dealership and they told me it was becuse of neglegence. I have never rotated the tires and they have 30K miles on them. Everywhere I search, I find that the majority of people say it might be a suspension/shock issue. But, the dealership is not going for it and not covering them under warranty. Should I just man up and purchase new tires?

You needed to rotate at at least every oil change on a jeep with a solid axle. Or they will cup. Lack of rotation has made them wear bad.

Rotate them now may help.

Google "tire wear pattern" and compare your wear to the ones pictured. That will give you a head start on what, if anything, is wrong.

Paperwork will ruin any military force.
